Why Molekule’s PECO technology matters in a polluted world

Air pollution kills millions of people every year and is continuing to get worse. More than nine in ten people globally live in areas with poor air quality. Not only is outdoor air quality a growing problem, indoor air quality can be two to five times worse than outdoor air.

Traditional air filtration technology is designed to collect pollutants. Molekule’s PECO technology takes the process of cleaning the air to a new level, physically destroying pollutants that are halted by the filter through the use of a proprietary nanocatalyst. This novel approach cleans the air in a more complete way than traditional methods, using chemistry to convert chemicals, mold, viruses, bacteria, and allergens into harmless gases like carbon dioxide and water.

The family of Molekule air purifiers that use PECO technology to clean the air have been rigorously tested and validated by third party laboratories. Most importantly, our customers have spoken in their own voices about how Molekule has affected their lives, and we make their unedited reviews available on our website.

We believe that Molekule has the best solution to the growing indoor air pollution problem. Learn more about us on our website, and more about air pollution, air quality, and purification technology on our blog.
